The folks at the Flying M Coffeegarage in Nampa got in to the holiday spirit on Dec. 3, when they hosted the annual Hip Holiday Market, showcasing the handmade wares of local artisans and crafters.
A steady crowd of gift hunters and curious shoppers kept vendors busy throughout the event, breaking up the buying and browsing frenzy by frequently hitting up the ready supply of caffeine and baked goodies at the popular coffeeshop's counter.
Warm drinks were nearly a matter of survival for the roughly dozen merchants set up in tents in the parking lot this year—a chance made when organizers decided to keep the action localized to the Flying M itself. BW was on the scene, too. Check out images from the action.
